CloudFormer is a template creation tool that creates an AWS CloudFormation template from existing AWS resources in your account. You select any supported AWS resources that are running in your account, and CloudFormer creates a template in an Amazon S3 bucket. In this hands-on lab, we will use CloudFormer to reverse-engineer a CloudFormation template from the existing resources in an account. **Note: The lab startup page has changed and is different from what you see in the video. Please use the AWS login credentials from the new lab environment to log in to the AWS console.
